Yes, but then you presumably wouldn't set dns_defnames on. If you've got
a proxy server that is only used by clients in some domain (the proxy
might of course, in fact almost certainly will, have parents and siblings
in other domains) then it makes sense, in order to have it behave as
near as possible to connecting directly from the users' point of view, to
have it resolve addresses in the local domain. Anyway i don't see the
logic behind

foo ==> foo.localdom....
